MARRIAGE REQUIREMENTS

The Special Marriage Act of 1954 dictates a 30-day requirement for residency in India, which means that at least one party of the wedding has to be living in India for at least 30 days before applying to get married. You’ll have to prove it from a certificate issued by the local police station.

An expat or foreign national marrying an Indian citizen will need some additional paperwork, but doesn’t need to become a citizen of India in order to get married.

Additionally, India recognises foreign marriage certificates, so if you’ve gotten married abroad, you won’t need to legally register your marriage in India. Non-resident couples might choose to get legally married in their home country and then have a ceremonial blessing in India instead, as that is simpler.

The documentation required to get married in India will depend on the type of wedding you’re going to have. At a minimum, you’ll need the following documents in advance of your wedding day:

·         Proof of Residency and Address in India for at least 30 days prior to the application, for at least one of the parties

·         A valid passport for both parties

·         Original birth certificate for both parties

·         Visa or Ration Card for any foreign parties involved in the marriage that will last longer than 30 days, indicating your length of stay

·         Certificate of No Impediment/Single Status stating that you’re not already married

·         No Objection Letters stating that you willingly consent to the marriage, obtained through your home country’s embassy

·         Divorce Papers or Death Certificate if you’ve been previously married and divorced or widowed

·         Passport sized photographs

For a Catholic wedding, the bride and groom will obtain your ‘No Objection’ certificate from your parish priest that acknowledges the wedding and permits the couple to marry at a church in India. You also may need additional documentation, such as baptism certificates and confirmation certificates.

Mumbai, a cosmopolitan metropolis, earlier known as Bombay, is the largest city in India and the capital of Maharashtra state. Mumbai was originally a conglomeration of seven islands on the Konkan coastline which over time were joined to form the island city of Bombay. The island was in turn joined with the neighboring island of Salsette to form Greater Bombay. The city has an estimated metropolitan population of 21 million (2005), making it one of the world's most populous cities. Mumbai is undoubtedly the commercial capital of India and is one of the predominant port cities in the country. Mumbai's nature as the most eclectic and cosmopolitan Indian city is symbolized in the presence of Bollywood within the city, the centre of the globally-influential Hindi film and TV industries. It is also home to India's largest slum population.
